There are many applications that allow you to use your phone as a remote for your Samsung TV. I find these apps very useful because I misplace my remote all the time. They act as a great alternative. I have been trying the Samsung TV & Remote (IR) for some time. Find out how this application has been working for me in this detailed review.

This application has several features. First and foremost, it has an image gallery which shows you the different types of TV models the company has in case you are in the market for a new TV. The app shows you a list of the most viewed Samsung products in the ‘Most Viewed’ section. There is also a store locator that suggests nearby stores based on your current location, a ‘buy now’ feature that directs you to a page with retailers selling different products and the ‘remote control’ which contains the basic remote control buttons.
Samsung TV & Remote (IR) is compatible with Android 4.0.3 and up devices. It is not available for iDevices.
Ease of Use
SAMSUNG TV & Remote (IR) is very straightforward and uncomplicated. However, I am not pleased with this app’s performance. One of the things I have a problem with is the ads. The app has so many ads in the promotional area that make it impossible to use the remote control. The fact that there is no way to remove or disable the ads makes it even worse. I also feel like the developers have concentrated so much on the promotion part of the app and neglected the actual remote. It doesn’t have any features that stand out. Even in the latest version, the only updates they have made are for the promotions.
This application has a simple interface. Everything is well organized, and I like that they have separated the promotions and the remote. This makes it easy to navigate. The design is inviting and vibrant because there are a number of colors in the app.
This app is free, and it doesn’t offer any in-app purchases.
- Easy to use;
- Great design;
- Does not need much storage space.
- Too many ads;
- Cannot replace your remote completely;
- Some users report that the app just does not work.
I had a lot of high hopes for SAMSUNG TV & Remote (IR) when I got it. I thought I had finally found the best remote for my TV, but this app disappointed me. I do not like that the app keeps showing me ads of TVs. I already own a Samsung TV, so, the remote control is more important to me than the ads. Therefore, I think the developers should consider improving the remote control because most users already have TVs and they are probably not looking to buy another one. I would not recommend this app. I suggest you look for another one with better remote control features.
